    Arguably Dunbar's most famous son was John Muir. He was born in the nineteenth century and moved to the US as a child. He grew up to be probably the most important conservationist/environmentalist in American history and his name is likely far better-known there than it is here - I think he gets a lot of credit for the whole National Parks movement and the conservation of wilderness, allowing species to flourish untroubled by man. I think he was particularly fond of bears.

    There's a country park on the outskirts of Dunbar, which has a good range of soft play and a few species of wild animals, named in his memory.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Forgot about John Muir. Sorry, my Booboo (for the want of a better pun).

    I understand that if it wasn't a bear the statue was to be of the Holy Father availing himself in the woods
